I am Shamit Khemka, Founder of SynapseIndia, I believe that workplace communication matters a lot. This is the age of communication and it is important that you should able to express your views properly with rightly selected words. There are times, I have seen that several discrepancies happen because of wrong communication. So, whether it’s e-mail or verbal communication, a person should know that what he or she is trying to convey.
This is the reason, several organizations have come forward to give training to the employees so that communication errors can be avoided. I believe that practice makes a man perfect and it is only possible if you give your best in every work. These days, we can see that most of the organizations are hiring Communication Experts to maintain the relationships with the customers. The companies have Public Relation team that builds the image of an organization.
Shamit Khemka, the founder of SynapseIndia strongly believes in helping others on a huge scale. I think I am one of the fortunate and blessed ones who are there in the position to help people. Being an entrepreneur, I think it is my duty towards the society.
The term “CSR” or “Corporate Social Responsibility” has different meanings to different people. For example, CSR activities are corporate initiatives to take some social responsibility and impact on social welfare. This information is theoretically true but for few people like me, CSR is beyond me and my company’s responsibilities. Some work is heartfelt. It is important, if you do something, do that from your heart else do not do it.
So, CSR basically means your responsibilities for the society, but I say that it is your love and affection towards the society. As an organization, if I am associated with anything, it will be heartfelt and beyond responsibility.
Shamit Khemka, the Founder of SynapseIndia completely believes that social media accounts handling is an art. I believe there are several advantages and disadvantages of social media. It completely depends on you that how you use it and how it can be beneficial for you. Social media allows you to connect to the world. At the same time, it shares several details about you. Thus, it completely depends on you that how much comfortable you are.
I have seen private people who are on social media. But they know their limitations of revealing their personal details. So, it is important that you know how much you should reveal to the world. It is nothing but a pure calculation of your privacy. If you want to avail benefits from the social media, you should not involve with any sort of negativity. It will hamper your image badly.
According to me, content plays a vital role on social media. Your identity is your content completely. So, you should be very careful about the posts and the topics you are posting or involved with. Going Viral is trendy, but for wrong reasons is not cool.
Several things define you as a person. People perceive what you show to them. Hence, it is completely your responsibility that you want to project yourself in front of the world. In the professional world, one must learn how to stay calm and professional. Office is a place, where certain decorum and politeness needs to be maintained to keep the environment cool.
So basically, we need to learn some ethics for the sake of our benefits and not for any other reason. For example, you can’t always expect a situation that is in your favor, so your action or reaction should be according to the situation. You must select your mind in between your heart and your instinct. It is an art to stay calm in the most difficult situation too.
We live in the age of communication. Phone calls, text messages, emails, social media, and other forms of communication awash our lives. Hence communication largely determines what kind of lifestyle we maintain. Same is true for a commercial organization. Prosperity and failure of an organization can be often attributed to its communication strategy.
Organizational communication is defined as a process through which activities of the organization are conveyed and coordinated to reach the common organizational goals. Communication is a central part of effective management in a professional setting.
Broadly, organizational communication can be divided into internal and external. Internal communication in organizations cover all types and means. It may include emails, meetings, and informal conversations through which information is passed. The flow of information is usually up, down, and across the network of employees, managers, and senior-level executives.
External communication comprises the other important half of the pie of organizational communication. Customer relationship, marketing, social media, press releases, and all such forms are external communication. Business enterprises need to manage both internal and external communications to smoothly run operations and management processes.
Companies around the world are now starting to realize that they all need more data and sophisticated analytics to survive the ever-growing competition. Currently, a significantly low percentage of businesses have big data or effective analytics at their disposal. Most of the data remain unorganized or in the siloes.
Surveys have suggested that even leading companies are struggling to smoothly transform into a data-driven business model. Even though an increasing number of companies have been investing in big data, machine learning, and AI, many of them are yet to taste success in terms of data analytics.
What’s the underlying cause that is keeping companies from the successful implementation of analytics? Data science and data technology are ready to deliver benefits. But most organizations, as it now turns out, are not yet ready for the data revolution. Business leaders around the world, and across industries should change this and make data analytics the most effective tool for making profits.
